The Carrier Microsteam turbine generator uses high pressure inlet steam to generate usable electric energy. This new energy recovery device is designed to be installed in parallel with pressure reducing valve stations in existing and new steam distribution systems.
The unit is made up of a unique patented radial outflow turbine, mounted on a epicyclical speed reduction gear, which is in turn mounted on an induction generator. The vertical package is equipped with controls that synchronize the operation of the power reducing valve, turbine, and induction generator to provide for a smooth transition of power to the grid.
Carrier Microsteam turbine uses existing steam sources to reduce energy bills:
- Accepts up to 200 psig inlet pressure at a maximum flow rate of 20,000 lb/hr
- Delivers a maximum of 275 kW at 460 volts
- Generates payback within 2 to 4 years depending upon your local market energy costs.
Vertical package concept meets critical design standards:
- Fits through a standard doorway and can be located in existing mechanical equipment rooms
- Provides low vibration and quite operation
- Operates with single button On-Off controls
- Provides durability, maintainability, and ease of operation
Carrier Microsteam turbine offers reliable energy recovery for applications with steam boilers or steam service equipment:
